My family and I stayed at Portland Hotel & Suites, which we were informed upon check in the hotel was bought by Candlewood. When I made reservations the hotel stated breakfast was included, when checking in I asked what time breakfast started I was informed that breakfast wasn't required to be offered by Candlewood, therefore there wasn't a free breakfast...

I just came back from a four night stay here with my husband and 2 year old. I got a great deal on Expedia and the location is great for what we were doing. Check in was interesting. The place is kind of hard to find first off. When we arrived it was around 1 pm. I knew check in...

This is not a hotel at all, just a 'tween' stages grab for a little extra cash. Part construction site, part halfway house for a very shady clientele. Formerly part of the Residence Inn, now under a temporary flag. Everything makeshift, down to the 'office', which is just a couple of rooms cobbled together from the old facility. To enter...

The decor was outdated and old, and though a kitchenette was provided, it simply made the room feel smaller. Wifi was awful. The free continental breakfast was limited to cereal, prepackaged pastries, some donuts, and bagels - lots of carbs. Despite some very loud people across the hall, we didn't hear any of the noise; we had a good night...

We just stayed here for two nights for a spur of the moment trip to Portland. Since it is peak summer tourist season in Maine, our lodging options were limited and this seemed like the best value for price. The hotel does seem to be going through some kind of transition, and the pool was closed, but the location is...

The hotel is undergoing upgrades I think, and so the pool isn't available. The lobby and hallways seem a bit dirty but the room was sufficient, clean, and spacious. The service at the front desk was very pleasant and kind, A+ on the service. The walls seem extremely thin.. You can hear every voice, footstep, tv, movement.. Incredibly uncomfortable to...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last week because we needed to be near Portland for a hospital stay. We found the suites to be clean and reasonably priced. The rooms have well equipped kitchens. The front desk was very accommodating when we unexpectedly needed to book an extra night, and even helped move our luggage. (Despite English...

I"m staying here right now. The front desk guy explained that this is the 'Portland Hotel' because Marriott has refused to let it stay Towne Place without improving the facility. The rooms smells like an old chinese restaurant covered in burnt hair. The sheets smell like mildew. If there was a single additional hotel available tonight, we would leave. I...

Our family had reservations at this hotel in July. In March, I spoke with a very knowledgeable young man about this hotel. He explained that it was under new ownership with new staff. He assured me that it would be fine. I saw the poor reviews on trip advisor and was quite concerned. I called to see if the manager...

Stephanie H, Front Office Manager at Portland Hotel and Suites, responded to this review

Dear Guest, I apologize for the difficulties you had in contacting our hotel. I understand how difficult it is to work through a language barrier. At the time you called, we were unfortunately short-staffed and had one of our employees whose English is difficult to understand manning the desk, and I apologize for that. He has since been moved to...
